# If all of the water were drained from the body of an average 160-pound man, how much would the body weigh?

Water comprising about 70% of the human body, if all the water was drained from the body of an average 160-pound man, the remains would weigh approximately 48 pounds.

48 lbs. The formula is the following: 160 X 70 (70% of our body is made up of water) so 160 X 70=11200. 11200 between 100 which equals 112. Then take the 160 lbs. and subtract 112 and you get the answer.

 On this date quite a long time ago, a certain body of water was involved in a famous man's activities and later figured in the historical account and a well-known idiom. We really aren't quite sure which body of water this was, though a Starbucks now exists at the supposedly-relevant site (naturally), and some historians think that they've got a lock on the location. What am I talking about?
